Considering the fact that the Harappan script may have been proto-Brahmi, the underlying language to be expected should be Sanskrit, or proto-Sanskrit, or derivatives of Sanskrit. Many of the rules of evolution that apply to scripts are equivalently true for languages too. Like scripts, languages too render themselves to similar evolutionary inspections, as they too carry imprints of their journey down the ages

Istopadesa   by Acarya Pujyapada is a concise work of 51 didactic verses leading the reader from the empirical to the transcendental, from the mundane to the sublime, through an experiential process of self-realization, rather than through a metaphysical study of the soul-nature.  Concise but deep in import,   Istopadesa   unambiguously establishes the glory of the Self. It is an essential reading for the ascetic. The householder too who ventures to study it stands to benefit much as the...

Acarya Samantabhadra’s Svayambhustotra (2 nd century CE) is a fine composition in Sanskrit dedicated to the adoration of the Twenty-four Tîrthankara , the Most Worshipful Supreme Beings. Acarya Samantabhadra was one of the most impelling proponents of the Jaina doctrine of anekantavada, a philosophical system which maintains that reality has multifarious aspects and that a complete apprehension of it must necessarily take into account all these aspects. Non-appreciation of this jewel of...

Agnihotra , the simplest form of ‘ Yajnya / Homa ’ performed in many countries all over the world. Although it’s an ancient fire ritual, it is based on the scientific aspects. It invokes sunrise and sunset timings, when far infrared radiations are produced from the sun, the burning of cow ghee, dried cow dung, unpolished rice in the typical inverted pyramidal shaped copper pot with the chanting of mantras about sun ( Surya ) and fire ( Agni ). It is found that far infrared radiations of...

A collection of proverbs related to agricultural practices. Collected in 1916, by  V. N. Mehta. The collection is based on privately owned manuscripts of the time.  The sayings are ascribed to  fakirs, sages, nagging wives and astrologers. Most of the sayings are forecasts of rain. They are related to the zodiac and to features in the landscape, such as the colour of the sky and the direction of winds.
